Continental contiecocontact5 They are as long as you don't hit the kerb very quite on the road awesome cornering great wearing as long as you rotate as needed or at least every 7½ thousand km check air pressure weekly and please check tyre sticker information in side driver door ...They are as long as you don't hit the kerb very quite on the road awesome cornering great wearing as long as you rotate as needed or at least every 7½ thousand km check air pressure weekly and please check tyre sticker information in side driver door located on b piller and stick to it as your car was developed using these spec's. Where the the journey begins at your tyres the performance you get out of a good set tyres will save your life in emergency situation tyres brake suspension set you will see quicker lap times unfortunately the little civic got in a stack and the smash repairer to save him money got a cheap set of Dayton dt30 and believe you me there a huge I'll be putting a new set of continental on asap not far insurance company don't check what there paying for I think if a tyres gets damaged in a accident should be replaced with same if not better tyre my I'm so angry with this smash repair for doing this i won't be back to see him his a shonkRead more

Do not buy Continental tyres Remember the story Emperor s New Clothes - everyone saying something because everyone else does as well? I had to learn hard way that Continental tyres are exactly this - overhyped garbage:
I ordered ContiPremium contact 5 online because it was ...Remember the story Emperor s New Clothes - everyone saying something because everyone else does as well? I had to learn hard way that Continental tyres are exactly this - overhyped garbage:
I ordered ContiPremium contact 5 online because it was voted best tyre by several magazines. When they arrived I was tired and was in terrible hurry, my friend picked them up; and I was exhausted after 1400 km of continuous driving, didn t look at the tyres, so I just drove to shop and had them changed. Next time on fuel station, I actually realized that I am driving on ContiECO contact instead. It was too late to change them, since I burned a full tank already. And this is what I can say after 3600 km on them - they suck!
1) I was driving trough warm April on Nokian WR D3,(winter tyre) once with 1600 kg and a passenger in the car and fuel consumption was less than with this eco garbage when empty (difference of 1.2 litres on 100 km) - so much about this garbage tyre being eco! I have never heard of summer tyre wasting more fuel during summer than winter tyre. Outrageous!!!
2) They wander when I am driving, and loose corners. I wasn t sure what is going on so I took car to the shop to check wheel geometry, guy there showed me results - car was OK 100% but said I am not first with these tyres to come with same problem.
3) they are by far loudest tyres I ever had, including situations when I had to drive with winter tyres trough simmer. Awful!!!
4) They give poor feedback and so far they perform far worse in rain than totally worn out Pirelli Cinturato I had on my car before.
5) overall bad performance and horrible unsafe feeling I have when I drive them.
If I were single and didn t have a wife that would nag me crazy for doing it, I d take them down and burned them hatefully in my back yard. Now I hope to sell them on classifieds and buy something else. I will never again buy anything Continental makes because this for me is proof that they buy their tweak titles (read:bribe) for published results. No other explanation.
We have 3 cars in family and theese are tyres on them:(summer/winter)(rate/rate)
Lancia Delta Nuova - Michelin/BFGoodrich - 5/5
Citroen C1 -Toyo/Yokohama - 4.5/4.6
Fiat Croma - Continental/Nokian - -2/5 ( yes, two points below zero)
I make 60-70 000 km a year, and I was till recently a president of a vintage car club (120 members) - so I know what I am talking about.
Do not buy continental tyres! They are just overhyped marketed garbage. I should listen everyone who was telling me not to buy them.
I throw ashes on myself now, feel ashamed and stupid and admit my error, and will post this on so many places as I can!!!
I do not promote any other brand or work for any shop or seller connected to car parts.Read moreSimilar opinion? Write a review!
